    Good Morning
    The Beach Diet on the weight loss tips, is a favorite of mine!! This diet is pretty easy to stick to, just having to cut out the carbohydarates is the hard part!!

    during the first phase of the diet (first 2 week detox) you should loose between 8 and 12 lbs (if you don't cheat) and the majority of this weight will come from the stomach area.

    after the first 2 weeks when you start to reintroduce the good carbohydrates into your diet, the weight loss will slow down to around 2-3lbs a week.

    The main aim of the South Beach diet is to change to way that you think about food, change the way that you prepare your food and have more control over what you eat. it is not a short term diet, it is supposed to a new way of life. (although i have used it as a quick boost for loosing a few pounds beofer my holidays!!)

    If you plan to start this diet, i would strongly recommend that you purchase the south beach diet book (this will become your bible) it explains all the phases of the diet in great detail & explains why you need to do the 2 week detox. it also contains many recipes to help you eat less carbohydrates.

    Mine too. She's not like my mum, more like a mate (that nags occasionally) She also happens to be a MILF (apparently) hahaha

    I know this is suppose to be about diets but i have to say Jo your a cool mum, and its really great that you have such a close relationship with eachother, and its a bonus you being young! My mum and i are very close, and i tell her everything nothing seems to shock her, and she's always up for a laugh.

    By the way Claire are you endorsing this diet babe, the minute i hear the word detox im gone!!!
